CD Reviews

It's a 5 star disc BUT.....
David Kenner | Fort Worth, Texas United States | 06/16/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The track listing that is shown here may be incorrect. The disc I had included "Pushin' Too Hard" by The Seeds, "Walk Away Renee" by The Left Banke, and "Sweet Pea" by Tommy Roe instead of "Devil With a Blue Dress", "Hanky Panky" and "See You in September". ...BR>Anyway, it's a great disc featuring Seattle disc jockey Pat O'Day spinning the platters during a typical radio show on KJR in 1966. Keep in mind that you don't purchase this disc for the songs but rather the opportunity to hear what radio was like during the golden days of Top 40 radio. O'Day often talks over the intros of the songs and the sound quality isn't up to par with what you would find on an oldies disc put out by Collectibles, Rhino, Eric or other reissue labels. But this disc and the "Cruisin' 1967" disc are among my most played CDs because they're so much fun to listen to. I just wish they were longer!"
Maybe best album in Cruisin' series

"Full disclosure: I grew up listening to KJR in the 1960's when I was a little kid, so I'm prejudiced. Having said that, this album really captures the feel of what listening to KJR was like back then when they were getting 40 shares in the Arbitron ratings (conversely, if you get above 7 these days in Seattle, you're number one).

There was a sense of energy and fun with KJR that you had to experience, and it really shows through here. I have all but one of the Cruisin' albums (I'm missing the legendary '70 album because I'd have to refinance my hosue to afford it), and this may be the best of all, although there's a lot to be said for the Robert W. Morgan and Arnie "Woo Woo" Ginsburg albums. If you only buy one album in the series, you could do a lot worse than this one."
